Download REMM to Your iPad

Key Info

  • You will be downloading all of the REMM web site files onto your iPad. This is not an app and it is NOT available in the app store.
    • (Do not confuse this with  the  Mobile REMM application on the app store that has a subset of all the information provided by this zip file. The zip file size for this download is 148 MB, and the instructions here do NOT apply to downloading the official Mobile REMM app.)
  • You will need to acquire additional software for the iPad to download REMM files to your iPad and be able to use them.
  • This software will be needed to:
    • Download and unzip the "REMM.zip file"
    • Open html files
    • Open and read PDF files
  • GoodReader is one of several apps that does all of these things. No preferential endorsement of this particular app is implied, but the REMM download has been tested with this app. Purchase is required.
  • If you have downloaded an earlier version of REMM to your iPad, you should delete all older REMM files BEFORE you download the new version.
    • Open GoodReader to the menu page
    • In the left column, select Downloads
    • In the Downloads section, select each row or folder associated with REMM. Then tap delete on the bottom.
